Dear wonderful RMFR readers,

For the last seven years, I’ve been your food critic at the Indy and worked with my incomparable wife Edie Crawford and our favorite writer Dionne Roberts here at the Food Report to cover our city’s kickass food scene. Things get hotter every day in these parts, with no end in sight.

But our own lives have other directions to go in, and so Edie and I are turning over RFMR into the strong hands of Dionne. She has been a huge part of RMFR’s success over the last year — most recently spearheading our joint pop-up dinner with Mark Henry and 291, which sold-out in three hours — and now she’ll continue to drive this little-bus-that-can to the highest heights.

As always , expect to read breaking news from a blazing restaurant scene, the latest and greatest from Colorado food, and RMFR exclusives about the people and places you care about. It’s those things that our advertisers have supported, and for that we’d sincerely like to thank Springs Orleans, The Famous, Front Range Barbeque and our good friends at Ginseng Creative. We’re also so grateful to KRCC for being such a great partner these past weeks.

Edie and I never knew RMFR would be as successful as it has been and we honestly can’t wait to see what happens next, both for the city and for this select community of food lovers.

From the bottom of our hearts, thanks for always reading.

Bryce & Edie
